In the picture they all wore matching pajamas but Willis’ wife, Emma Heming Willis, and their two daughters — Mabel, 8, and Evelyn, 5 — were nowhere to be seen.
Appearing on the “Dopey” podcast last Friday, Scout set the record straight about her parents’ quarantine arrangements, saying Heming Willis had initially intended to join the group in Sun Valley, Idaho, but a medical emergency had left her stranded in Los Angeles.
“It’s just so funny because to me they’re just like my super f***ing weird parents but to everyone else, there’s like this different level,” Scout told the host, known only as Dave.
“My stepmum was going to come up here too with my little sisters … but my younger sister … at a park, had never gotten the talk about not f***ing with hypodermic needles that she found, so she actually tried to poke her shoe with it and poked her foot,” said Scout.
The accident called for a trip to the doctor and Scout said Heming Willis chose to stay in Los Angeles while waiting to get test results from the doctor, and Bruce traveled to their family home in Sun Valley “early.”
Scout added: “Travel got crazy, so my stepmom stayed in LA with my little sisters.”
Moore and Willis were married from 1987 to 2000 and have remained amicable. Willis married his current wife in 2009.
Scout said it was cute being with her parents in the house where she was raised. “They’re both such nerdy, adorable ’90s parents in a small town where they chose to have their kids and not be in LA.”
Travel restrictions may be keeping Willis and his wife apart, but she is staying in touch with her extended family on social media. On the Instagram photo showing the family wearing matching stripy pajamas, she commented: “Not many can pull that color off. Lookin’ good squad!”
